Tanning Water! You don’t drink it …

Primark (Penneys) have brought out a dupe for Tan Luxe Tanning water €39 for €5! 

I haven’t seen it on shelves yet but I’ll give it a go! I’m currently finishing off a bottle of Bronz Express so will try this asap. 



Review: Tan Organic, Self tanning oil 

  The lovely people from Tan Organic sent me this self tanning oil a couple of months ago and I have been trying it out. 

The tanning oil is made with a unique blend of 8 different plant oils including Borage seed oil, Argan oil and Orange peel oil. TanOrganic’s Self-Tanning Oil has a subtle citrus fragrance with a hint of rose. It adds a natural bronzed effect to the skin and is lighter than our Original Self-tan but darker than a gradual tanner.

At first I was scared by the clear consistency of this oil as I am so used to applying a tinted self tanner. The first time I applied it I missed a few areas as I was in a rush to get out the door but simply applied some more to the areas I missed and it blended in perfectly. 

I recommend exfoliating and moisturising all areas that are prone to dryness prior to applying the oil but to my delight it didn’t actually cling to my normally clingy dry areas as much as other tans I’ve tried.

I’ve got my application perfected now as I start on my legs first then work my way up and this way I don’t miss an area. To make the tan even and blended I apply it at night and shower in the morning.

Review of Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess oil

  This gorgeous Golden Goddess oil created by Marrissa Carter is definitely one product every girl should have.   I’ve used it on myself, brides, models on shoots and the effect is just brilliant. I’ve used it on cheek bones to highlight and add a bit of shimmer for girls on a night out.  Yesterday I applied it to my bride as her arms needed a little glamming up and it gives a lovely sheen to the skin without looking too glittery.  The stunning Jo Archbold from Morgan The Agency for Frocknfabulous

A lot of my clients have since bought it after seeing it in action and how flattering it is.   

I applied Golden Goddess oil on the beautiful Grace O’Mahony on the cover on of our Confetti Magazine Summer Shoot. 


I’ve applied it to collar bones to accentuate the neck lines. 

It’s been applied to models arms and legs at shoots to take the bare look away and it looks amazing in photos. 

Oh, I forgot to mention how delicious it smells too. 

Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess oil can be bought in Meaghers Pharmacy or CocoaBrown.ie
